I loved this Hotel so near to the falls with a lovely walk in park area and places to sit and take in the view. The hotel had a lovely pool area that we used a lot.. I wished we had booked for a longer stay.

I was greatly impressed by this Best Western. The room was spacious, clean and modern. Everything worked. The breakfast was delicious! Between eggs, biscuits and gravy, cereal, waffles, juice, fruit, oatmeal and more I walked away feeling full and healthy. The breakfast helpers were outstanding. The view of a park, pond and beautiful LDS temple across the street made for...

The hotel is in a nice location. Good breakfast and comfortable rooms for this type of budget hotel. Very nice staff at the front office. Wi Fi was not that good, but if staying here a short time, it is a good price overall.

The rooms while small are clean and comfortable with excellent beds and good TV channel selection. The morning breakfast, while crowded is excellent. Would love to continue staying here, but the WIFI service was virtually unusable.

This is a great Best Western and the location is awesome. It is located literally right across the street from the falls and the very sweet river walk.

I have stayed in many best westerns over the years and the Driftwood Inn was one of the best! The Omelets made to order were a huge plus. The room was clean and recently renovated with tile and slate bathroom. The location directly across from the falls and the LDS temple made for spectacular views.

We booked this as our quick halfway point stay and it became our favorite hotel on this vacation. We stayed at another hotel on the way back home and I wish we had rebooked here. It was built a long time ago, which worried me when looking at it online, but you can tell the owners have put a lot...

The hotel is right on the strip of the falls. It was BEAUTIFUL! The room we stayed in was HUGE and perfect for our family of four. The outdoor pool was cool cold to enjoy, but the hot tub was VERY warm. The fitness room adequate.
